Taking great photos

When buyers are looking at properties online they make their minds up in seconds. That’s why having the very best photographs of your home is so important. Get the photos right and it could mean a quicker sale. Why? Well, because first impressions count.

Please provide us with a photo of the front and rear aspect of your property, and outside space, and one of each room.
